GOOD ARROWS is a formidable collection of songs, and could well be a contender for the finest LP of 2007 thus far!

All of Tunng's vital ingredients are here - menacing vocal harmonies, rustic guitar picking, crackly samples and glitchy beats. This LP, like their previous two, is permeated with a decidedly dark and sinister edge (just check out the lyrics to "Hands" - the words will haunt you in the most delicious manner!) However, to counteract this darkness the music is buffed up and shiny and wonderfully melodic. Tunng's poppiest album to date? OH YES!

"Good Arrows" will compel you to finger pop and hum along to its endlessly catchy numbers. It is frighteningly consistent and also very, very unique. "Folktronica"? Hardly. This is timeless folk-pop.

Just listen to the awesome piano-fuelled "Bullets" (my current favourite). In an ideal world, this tune would be number 1 in the hit parade! It really is a remarkable pop tune and indicative of the fact that this band deserves more recognition.

If you are unfamiliar with the mighty Tunng, I strongly urge you to purchase this LP (and indeed their previous 2 albums - both highly palatable). Believe me, after a few listens your "tunng" will be hanging out and you'll be desperate for more!

After 'Comments of the inner Chorus' London Nu-Folk ensemble Tunng provide another slice of new age mellowness and bliss which lifts the spirits and drives away the demons.
Some critics have argued that Tunng's use of electronic wizardry and the production vales are over-cooked. I'm not sure where these mood hoovers are coming from ? We are not talking The Wurzels 1978. This is a 21st century new age folk band who are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is normally considered folk music.
I'm not sure Good Arrows quite matches 'Comments' but it's certainly runs it close.

I first heard Tunng when "Bullets" was played on 6Music. On the strength of that I got this album which is simply sublime, and then the rest of their back catalogue. Wonderful music with cutting lyrics.

Whatever way you look at it, this album is a little different. More "mainstream" than some of Tunngs other work, but still eccentric enough to be different. If you have not heard any of this bands work, it comprises a (strange to some ears) mixture of folk and sampled sounds from a wide range of sources. Something the folk elements are to fore and at other time the samples are in the front. "Soup" is about as good an example of what I mean as can be found on the album - an intricate piece played over and around the commentary for a horse race! This may not be folk music in the "finger in the ear, organic beer" tradition, but as we don't live in the 18th Century anymore this is not a problem. This album is interesting, creative and lively - I suggest you listen to it!

Format: Audio CD
A haunting and intellegent album which kind of sneaks under your skin. Manages to sound very fresh and modern while having a folk soul. Well crafted songs with a sense of humour and a touch of menace. Poetic, disturbing, and at times verging on genius.
